Beanstalk

The fastest, easiest way to deploy

Instantly deploy code from Beanstalk to your development, staging and production servers.

Here’s how it works:

Illustration of deployment process

1 Initiate a deployment

Manually deploy with a click in the app, automatically deploy on each commit, or use deploy tags in a commit [deploy:production].

2 We detect the changes

Beanstalk gathers only new and changed files since the last deployment, making it fast and accurate. You can preview the changes before they happen.

3 Deployment is triggered

Files are uploaded, SSH commands are executed and deployment hooks are triggered. We log everything for you.

4 Team is notified

Your entire team can view release notes and optionally receive an email notification with details about the deployment status.

Deployment best practices are built-in:

Deploy from source code

Deploy changes directly from your repositories to (S)FTP, SSH and Amazon S3 in one step. Avoid manually editing live servers and never mess with an FTP client again.

Use multiple environments

Play in development, test in staging, and deploy proven code to production. Beanstalk allows you to easily isolate and organize multiple environments.

Stay consistent

Once environments and servers are setup the entire team deploys using the same process. Fewer mistakes, more progress.

Communicate with your team

Always know what was deployed and when. Team members can get email notifications on each deployment, view the status of servers and review release notes.

Automation with SSH and hooks

Using SSH deployments and deployment web hooks, you can run scripts and commands directly on remote servers for more complex workflows.

Set yourself up for scaling

Have more than one server? Beanstalk can deploy to multiple servers simultaneously, perfect for distributed and load balanced environments.

New Deploy to Amazon S3 with CloudFront

Serve assets on S3

Amazon S3 is a perfect fit for hosting application assets, such as images and stylesheets. You can simultaneously deploy your application to your servers and your assets to Amazon S3.

Simple static site hosting

Did you know that Amazon S3 can host static sites? With Beanstalk deployments to S3 you can deploy your static HTML sites without ever setting up a server.

Distribute content over CDN

With Amazon’s Cloudfront service, you can globally distribute your files for low latency and high transfer rates to your customers. Beanstalk deployments allow you to invalidate cache on deploy to ensure consistent and fresh content.
